What is it about luxury watches that makes them so sought after and appreciated? Depending on your lifestyle choices, you might not need to wear one on a regular day out, but as a fashion accessory, they’re irreplaceable. Blending the best of both worlds when it comes to functionality and artistry, the Jaquet Droz Tropical Bird Repeater is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Sure, it’s difficult to remain original in this day and age, especially with so many other luxury watchmakers out there.
However, Jaquet Droz has managed to take the world by storm once again. And this time, the brand has decided to honor a symbol of delicacy and beauty: the singing bird. Jaquet Droz has been creating lovely “bird” watches for five years now. In order to mark the fulfillment of these five years, the company has turned to the humble hummingbird for inspiration. The result is breathtaking.
Vibrant colors, gold elements that have been hand-sculpted, handmade engravings and paintings, all come together to form a unique display of elegance and opulence. The case measures 47mm and was put together using 18k 5N rose gold. As for the dial motifs, they represent the beautiful Garden of Eden in its entire splendor. And since this is an automaton watch, it boasts seven different animations for up to four different scenarios. Each animation can last up to 12 seconds, and the bird’s wings flap 40 times per second. There’s even a trio of dragonflies with Super-Luminova wings that immediately catch the eye.
Everything is animated by a Jaquet Droz RMA89 calibre, which comprises a silent wheel regulator, a power reserve of 60 hours, and 86 jewels. Limited to just eight units, the Jaquet Droz Tropical Bird Repeater is accompanied by a rolled-edge hand-made dark green alligator strap and an 18k red gold folding clasp.
